Tattoos of the Sigil of Baphomet — the Insignia of the Church of Satan

Since most of us worship the devil here, we thought it was about the hell time we held a dark seance to summon up some Sigil of Baphomet tattoos. (Editor’s Note: This is not true. We just tell Ross this so that when he invites us to weird sacrifices we can say, “Oh, my family has their own goat slaying party this weekend.”) For the uninitiated out there, the symbol is the official insignia of the Church of Satan, and it features an inverted pentagram with Baphomet’s head at its center. This emblem initially appeared on the The Satanic Mass LP — a recording of a Satanic ritual by high priest Anton Szandor LaVey made at the Church of Satan headquarters, aka The Black House, in 1967. It showed up on the cover of The Satanic Bible just two years later and has been synonymous with the institution ever since.
